Last night I discovered one more passionate activist for animals rights, Joey Carbstrong. Among the videos he is uploading on his personal channel on You tube, he has one video from a Halal slaughterhouse ( Halal means clean in Arabic and it;s the only way of killing an animal which is accepted by Muslims in order to eat the meat of an animal. This way of slaughtering is taking place without stunning the animal - not that when the animals are stunned they get anesthetized or don't feel the pain, but like this they can't move so it's more to facilitate the slaughterer than for the comfort of the animal). Which of course I did NOT watch because I am not as strong as activists like him are...who are able to enter slaughterhouses and dairy industry premises in order to expose what is going in there - hoping that people will wake up and make the connection (just like I woke up, by watching the first 20-30 minutes of Earthlings)...
However I watched the video he uploaded after this horrendous experience because he received many messages from followers who were worried about him, asking if he is suffering from PTSD , how will he recover after being witness to something like that etc. I also decided to watch 2 more video of his which are showing rescued farm animals. Pigs and cows, ducks, sheep, goats, hens, turkeys...Animals which - as the owner of the sanctuary stated - we must call as survivors. Because they indeed are survivors of a holocaust that is taking place everywhere, on a daily basis, next to us and no one is talking about it.
No one except us - the activists, the vegans who we are - in the eyes of an average person - unbalanced, oversensitive, extreme etc.
And in case the comparison to the holocaust is something you consider inappropriate or extreme, watch what a survivor of the Holocaust has to say about the first time he saw a slaughterhouse (and since then he has been dedicated to the fight for animals rights)
Below you can read several quotes from some Holocaust survivors / people who lost family during the Holocaust:
